VcSmith : The shared version of VcTester which is a white-box test tool for C source codes to facilitate the use of VC
VcSmith (Visual Code Smith) is shareware version of VcTester which is a white-box test tool for C source codes to facilitate the use of Visual Studio C/C++ (VC6, VC7 or VC8).It offers three major components: editor, debugger, and tester.The editor is similar to SourceInsight, it supports C, C++, and CSE languages, offers highlighted display of key words, prompted input, jump and rebound of symbol definition, display call trees, generate framework codes, etc. The debugger supports integrated build construction, breakpoint setup, single-step trace, view and modification of variables, and fast view of parameters called by functions and corresponding return value.The tester supports script test driver (reading and writing C variables and calling C functions), scripted test data building, project-based management of test suites and test cases, debug or formal run test cases.We recommend that you use VcSmith with VC (Visual C/C++ and Visual Studio development kit are products of Microsoft). If it is not used with VC, including VC6, VC7, and VC8, only the source code editor functions in VcSmith will function normally.Different from some programming environments (such as Source Insight), VcSmith offers strong functions in source code editing and provides edge-cutting functions of scripted debugging and single-step tracing, so that users can easily build a debugging environment with CSE scripts, and the debugging process is online and visual, as what you see is what you get.What's more, VcSmith also supports standard tests, and scripts building and triggering calls can be repeatedly used in standard tests. Online debugging supported by VcSmith is a highlight of the software.Online debugging means that the program under test need not restart during the course of debugging, and all debugging operations are online, so that various driver scripts can be written and debugged continuously, and bug locating, debugging result viewing, and debugging script re-optimizing can be done online, which can greatly improve the programming efficiency.VcSmith features a very simple, easy interface. The learning costs are very low. Meanwhile, it offers strong integration functions for external utilities, which further extends the expandability of VcSmith as a general research and development platform.Please note that VcSmith does not support the debugging and testing of C++ codes, but only supports the coding, debugging and testing of C language projects. In addition, the debugging and testing functions of VcSmith must be coordinated with the use of VC (VC6, VC7 and VC8).
